Morgan Burnett: Released by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett (Achilles) has been released by the Browns, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The 31-year-old strong safety, who suffered a season-ending Achilles' injury in Week 11 this past season, will now look to catch on elsewhere once he re-proves his health. Prior to sustaining his injury, Burnett logged 41 tackles, two sacks and a pick in eight games for the Browns.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett underwent surgery to address his torn Achilles on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Burnett sustained the injury during last Thursday's loss to the Browns and moved to injured reserve earlier Tuesday, and he'll now be able to begin the recovery process. Juston Burris is expected to fill in at strong safety for the Browns in his absence.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Burnett suffered a torn Achilles during Week 11's win over the Steelers and is ruled out for the remainder of the season, so this move was expected. The veteran safety suited up in eight games with the Browns, recording 41 tackles, two sacks and an interception. Juston Burris is slated to fill in at strong safety opposite Damarious Randall. Burnett has one year remaining on his deal with Cleveland at a cap hit of $4.825 million.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett will miss the rest of the season with a torn Achilles, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Burnett sustained the injury late in the second quarter of Thursday's 21-7 win over the Steelers. To that point, Burnett was having his best game of the season with five tackles -- including one for a loss -- two passes defensed and an interception. Justin Burris helped fill the void Thursday, playing 42 snaps, his most since Week 3, while contributing five tackles, one sack, one interception and forcing a fumble.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Torn Achilles feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett is believed to have sustained a torn Achilles during Thursday's 21-7 win over the Steelers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Burnett was forced out of Thursday's divisional tilt on a non-contact play just prior to halftime. He's scheduled for an MRI on Friday, which will reveal the full extent of his injury, but there's major cause for concern that the veteran may be sidelined for at least the remainder of the season. If Burnett is indeed forced to miss significant time, Juston Burris, Eric Murray (knee) and Sheldrick Redwine will be candidates to play expanded roles on defense going forward.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Out for game with Achilles injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Steelers due to an Achilles injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Burnett went down on a non-contact play just before halftime, which is cause for major concern. A torn Achilles would likely sideline the veteran for the remainder of the season, but look for more updates on the extent of the injury to come in the following days. Before exiting the contest, Burnett recorded five tackles, two passes defensed and an interception. Juston Burris and Sheldrick Redwine are likely to see increased reps for the remainder of Thursday's game.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Leaves with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett exited Thursday's game against the Browns with an ankle injury, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The veteran safety was all over the field during the first half with five tackles and an interception before suffering the injury. Justin Burris figures to see increased snaps at safety as long as Burnett remains sidelined.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett recorded eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's win over the Bills.

Burnett and fellow safety Damarious Randall each played all 69 of the Browns' defensive snaps Sunday, and played a part in limiting the Bills to only 16 points. Up next for Cleveland is a matchup with the red-hot Steelers in Week 11.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Quiet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett had one tackle and played 26 of 76 snaps on defense in Monday's 31-3 loss to the 49ers in Week 5.

Burnett returned from a two-week absence to start the game after being listed as questionable leading up to game time. That he played fewer than 50 percent of the snaps suggests he's not all the way back yet. The strong safety has 13 tackles and two sacks through three games played.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett (quadriceps) is active for Monday's tilt against the 49ers.

Burnett was initially designated as questionable for Monday's contest, but he's progressed well enough in his recovery to suit up. The veteran safety will retake the field after having missed two straight games.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Questionable for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the 49ers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Burnett was able to log a full practice Saturday, but he's still uncertain for the game. If he can't go, this will be the third straight game Burnett misses, and Jermaine Whitehead -- who made an interception and forced a fumble in Week 4 -- will start at strong safety in his place.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Won't play against Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett (quadriceps) is inactive Week 4 against the Ravens.

Burnett is just one of the three starters in the Cleveland secondary that won't suit up Sunday, as he'll join Denzel Ward (hamstring) and Greedy Williams (hamstring) on the inactive list. Given all the injuries, the Week 4 matchup could prove to be a high-scoring affair.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Questionable for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett (quadriceps) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.

Burnett wasn't able to practice at all this week, which doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up in Baltimore. With Denzel Ward (hamstring) and Greedy Williams (hamstring) also nursing injuries, the Browns' starting secondary could be fairly depleted as they work to contain the Ravens' aerial attack.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Can't shake injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett (quadriceps) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

At least Damarious Randall cleared concussion protocol, because the rest of the Browns' starting secondary -- Burnett, Denzel Ward (hamstring) and Greedy Williams (hamstring) -- missed the team's first practice of the week. Burnett's quick recovery will be ideal for deep pass protection considering Lamar Jackson ranks second in the league with 16 passes over 20 yards.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Rams.

Burnett will miss his first game of the season. Fellow safety Damarious Randall (concussion) will sit out this contest as well, meaning Jermaine Whitehead and Eric Murray are set to start.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett (quadriceps) is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Burnett is managing a quadriceps injury suffered during Monday's win over the Jets. The veteran safety will likely draw his usual start in Cleveland's secondary if he's able to suit up, and Jermaine Whitehead will slot into the starting lineup if Brunett is unable to go.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Can't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett (quadriceps) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Burnett suffered this injury in Monday's game versus the Jets, so he's had a shortened amount of time to recover. The veteran safety has been a versatile member of the team so far with 12 tackles (six solo) and two sacks, but his status is in jeopardy for Sunday's game versus the Rams. This could become a major issue in the Browns' secondary since Damarious Randall (concussion) also missed Wednesday's practice, so Jermaine Whitehead and Eric Murray are preparing to start at safety if neither starters can return.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Suffers quad injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett was removed from Monday's game with a quadriceps injury, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Burnett had a second straight productive game before leaving. He recorded six tackles and registered a sack for the second straight week.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Effective in Browns debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett made six tackles -- two for a loss -- and a sack in Sunday's blowout loss to the Titans.

Although the Browns' secondary was carved up for 248 yards and three touchdowns by Marcus Mariota, Burnett proved he's still a versatile safety with the ability to blitz the quarterback from the safety position. Burnett played all 61 defensive snaps in this outing alongside Damarious Randall, and he's expected to play the same role in Week 2's Monday night game versus the Jets.

Browns' Morgan Burnett: Heading to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett will sign a contract with the Browns on Friday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Burnett was granted his release from the Steelers on Monday after a disappointing 2018 in which he totaled only 30 tackles in 11 games. The 30-year-old should compete for the starting role at strong safety with new addition Eric Murray, as 2018 starter Jabrill Peppers was sent to the Giants in the trade for Odell Beckham (quadriceps) in March.
